On May 18, 2023, guests and locals visiting Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa joined in the celebration with intriguing Navigator-led neighborhood tour with unexpected discoveries in Mai Khao, Phuket.

Mai Khao Beach is the longest and most beautiful beach in Phuket, and known for its stunning national park setting. It is also a home to the Leatherback Sea Turtle’s and Jakkajun’s – a local Mole Crab. Furthermore, Mai Khao village and its friendly, smiling people provide a heritage of agriculture and fishing.
The tour started by a journey in the colorful, wooden Phuket traditional ‘Po-Thong’ minibuses from the resort to nearby Baan Ar Jor – the 87 years old museum home. The next stop was at Pak Lin Harn Farm of Bann Mai Khao – a small district community enterprises group where they grow local vegetable known as ‘Pak Lin Harn’ – the starfish-shaped vegetable that is used in authentic Southern Thai dishes. On the way back to the resort, guests also experienced the unique and traditional way of catching Mole Crabs on Mai Khao beach by the local fishermen. The night concluded with ‘Evenings at Renaissance’ and scrumptious food from the multi-award-winning resort’s signature Thai restaurant ‘Takieng’.
